Not bad, Sentai. Good choice for this week. Wonder what you'll license next week?

So hyped for this. I hoped for years Kure-nai would get licensed. Wish it was getting a dub but whatever. I'll take what I can get.

So you know that everyone is human and the series has a more serious feeling?

It sounds like a nice license.

The anime had a nice story but the OVA had waaay better character design.

I was not a fan, but it's a good acquisition I must say.

Wow, that was a while, I really liked Kure-nai, shame it's not bluray, but I'll take what I can get. It does give hope to other gems I've liked over the past few years eventually getting licensed as well.

Its more on the melancholic side than on the fun/comedy side like Inu x boku.
It has a decent story and is well executed. It ends kinda abruptly and probably why is so underrated.
huh?

Good action and heartwarming.
The manga is better, but this is definitely a great watch. The ending is extremely satisfying also.

I was hoping for a dub, for the play recital episode would have been hilarious.

Kure-nai was one of the more compelling SoL's that I've seen. I'd love to hear it dubbed, but doesn't look like it'll get one.

Sentai got hit by the moneytrain that they can afford to license something every week? It used to be 5-6 titles PER YEAR

If I lived in the US, I would seriously consider buying this after the likes of Princess Tutu and Haibane Renmei (and also Fancy Lala if the license for that hasn't expired). Certainly one of the most enjoyable anime I have seen.

Unfortunately, I don't.

Sentai either won the lottery or they are up to their necks in debt.

So when am I going to get my unlicensed Gundam series subbed/dubbed?

I don't see what's so great about Kure-nai. I tried finishing it, but couldn't bring myself to do so.

I was just looking at this Anime yesterday, but hadn't noticed this.

I'm not sure whether to watch, or not..

REALLY? Kure-nai is one of my favorite anime (I was just about to start rewatching it this weekend). I'm so glad and I really hope they don't fuck this up. If it's good, I would GLADLY purchase it.

I always recommend this series to anyone I can, since I don't think that many people know about it.

Maybe Bandai's helping them get new titles? They did say their new focus was getting other companies to license stuff [/purespeculation]

Anyways, I love the artwork already and the OP's not too bad. I'll check it out now :)

It was in an interview they said something about being sub-licensers.
